LifeJournal™ Newsletter – January 2007

LifeJournal Newsletter – January, 2007
Happy New Year! 

It’s been a very hectic and fun few weeks. Our college age kids were home for a couple of weeks and the house was filled with visitors and house guests during the past few weeks. Also, since the last couple of months are typically the busiest sales times of the year for us at Chronicle Software, there has been lots of late night work and juggling of tasks–but  I still had time for sailing, walking on the beach, and spending time with friends.So although this newsletter is dated January 2007, in actuality I’m writing a few days into February. I apologize for my tardiness, but my intent is to have another newsletter out in late February–so I’ll get back on track.

The first article this month is about making connections when journal writing to help you think and write more deeply about your life. The second is about some of the basic mechanics of the LifeJournal programs. For those who are not computer wizards, this information will help you understand some of the basic workings of LifeJournal.

Making Connections

I recently received THE NEW YORKER magazine as a holiday gift.  In the January 8, 2007 issue is an article by Joan Acocella, “Nights at the Opera:  The life of the man who put words to Mozart,” which is about several books recently written about Lorenzo Da Ponte, the librettist for several Mozart operas.  In an interesting observation about Da Ponte’s autobiography, Ms. Acocella writes:  “Never does Da Ponte try to connect the events of his life to his own character.  This may be the least introspective autobiography ever written.”

I made a mental note of that quote because what I believe is most motivating about journaling is making connections between one’s life and one’s character.
